The kids lately taught me rather well. I am wasting their time by trying to talk to them, when I am my own worse problem, and when I am their own worse problem too.
I read several Ajahn Chah's books and they were great.
Is there a China-Chinese clone of Access to Insight, as far as my exploration within Buddhism has led me my sangha has always been English oriented, and at time versed in Pali and / or even Sanskrit. These days again and again whether at my neighbourhood buddhist activities, or when I meet new buddhists online, a lot of them are from the youthful generation of economic boom in China with healthy appetites whether of theravadin dharma or instant noodles. I tried working with them with English, they are eager in learning, faster than I am. Sometimes my duty as a facilitator or guest is more about helping Asian youths relearning religions that came from their hometown. They come surrounding me enquiring about phenomena that came from their own backyard. It's challenging because I can neither tell them that I know less than their parents, nor can I tell them that they probably know better than I do, they are just younger teens helping an older me relearn as I turn into somebody else's senior.
In their words yesterday as I attended a Buddhist youth gathering, I was nominated as an "Elder" rationale being I was the 3rd oldest survivor within the room. Within a seeming blink of an eyelid, what used to be a youngest junior foraying into Buddhism within that same setting, today has been nominated as an "Elder".
It caught me both by shocking surprise, while at the same time silly realisation. (I had aged)
Ajahn Chah is dead gosh I almost forgot.
